Robotic surgical tools tough to keep clean
from HealthDay News
Even with repeated cleanings, it's virtually impossible to remove all contamination from robotic surgical instruments, a new study suggests. Over the course of 21 months, the researchers assessed protein residue on 132 robotic and standard surgical instruments that were cleaned according to manufacturers' instructions. The cleanings were 99.1 percent effective for standard instruments and 97.6 percent effective for robotic instruments, the investigators found.
